Every post that you make about modding your truck I always think about this comment you made and laugh to myself.

if I do anything else to the lightning, it'll be a 2/4 drop (maybe in the future) and a sound system and done. (already got the rear 2" drop kit for leveling).

the list for the 67 is miles long and 10's of thousands of dollars deep lol

4r75 ratios
2.84
1.55
1.0
0.70

6R80E ratios
4.17
2.35
1.52
1.14
0.87
0.69

4r75
2.84 * 3.73 = 10.59

6R80E
4.17 * 3.55 = 14.80

MUCH better outta the hole

not to mention

4r75
3.73 * 0.70 = 2.611

6R80E
3.55 * 0.69 = 2.44

so you net a 40% increase outta the hole and a 10% increase in cruising

thats win-win right there
